    I really wish I had an immediate use for these, just to play around with it :(
    Maybe if I buy a VLX? (Unlikely lol)

    Well, I'm glad I haven't used my MC Cthulu yet.

    Now I can just buy one of these babies and save my Cthulu for a project box or something. :D

    Nope. In the end, people still hate messing with wires.

    Good shit Toodles. I wish I'd known about this sooner. Gummo showed me one this weekend and I thought I was either going to drool or cream my pants. Possibly both. If I can help in any way, please let me know.

    Well, for TE's, I think people unsure of their ability (people without 'the knack') may want a tech to do it, but once I get the guide up, they'll have a much better idea of what it will take. The really nice thing as got to be FOR the techs that do installs. It has GOT to make the install time way short, especially if they have spare TE pcbs ready ahead of time. Hook up the ribbons and the Kitty->TE USB wires so all you need to do to mod someone stick is cut the USB wire, unplug the existing ribbons, screw down/solder the four USB wires, plug and done.

    Now the VLX one, nah, you dont even need the knack for that. They've been field tested with 4 out of 5 autistic chimpanzee's getting it first try, and that fifth chimpanzee was busy in training mode for Dark Phoenix combos. Stupid simple install.

    Speaking of which, its a good sign when your first install of all production parts goes swimmingly. I just put one into a MvC2 TE, taking pictures all of the way, so I have pictures to go with the instructions for the install guide I'm writing. Doing the same for the VLX will be like 5 minutes, tops, taking pictures all of the way.

    hrm... TE kitty work in an SE?
    i mean i think the round 1 TEs and SEs probably have the same or similar ribbon cables/connections...

    Is it possible to remove a 360 PCB from a 360 SE, put it in a PS3 TE and have it daisy chain with a Kitty TE?

    Everything will work fine, but you're probably going to want the LED daughterboard from the SE as well, so you'd end up having the white plastic LED/Guide/Turbo section on the black TE case.

    Well, that's if you can remove the daughterboard cover from the SE. I'm not 100% on that part but I think you can.

    Toodles. Is there a way to tell if the FW has been updated w/o trying it in another machine? I went over to a buddies and tried installing the new FW with no avail.

    Though I am already a huge fan of the MC cthulu, i will definitely keep an eye on this.

    Any information on what the problem with the firmware update was? But no, there's no way to check the firmware version installed. I did put one on the board and tested before I brought it to you. I need information about the problems you're seeing and how its behaving and what you're testing on.

    thanks man.

    I saw in the 2nd post that these aren't yet working on the TE-S sticks.... I'm guessing this applies to the Blazblue and Chun Li sticks that also use the updated PCB?
    I'll be dual modding my blazblue stick in the next few weeks and would like to try out the new board if it'd work.

    If the lock switch also disables the start and select, then it isn't currently support. Chun is out, but I dont know about the blazblue stick because I've never seen one.

    I have one and it does. I guess I'll be going back to the MC Cthulhu/Imp route.

    So after reading the first posts, I'm still a bit confused. It has full support for the R1 TE on all the consoles that the MC Cthulu supports, and it goes in an Xbox 360 stick, but it doesn't work on the 360? Did I read that right and am I understanding that this is meant to expedite dual mods as opposed to being a dual mod in itself?

    If this is NOT 360 compatible, could that please be edited in the first post? I have a feeling that will clear up much confusion.
  • PaperTigrePaperTigre すごい!!!!! Joined: Posts: 2,200
    The Kitty itself does not support 360.
    Thats whats the 360 pcb is used for.

    Alright, that's what I was wondering. For some reason I thought it was meant to be a total PCB replacement, as opposed to a compliment.

    Man Toodles, I really don't know what sort of crazy things you'll come out next. You're just way too unpredictable man! :looney:

    I haven't confirmed this 100%, but I believe it was mentioned somewhere that the BlazBlue TE uses the 2nd gen PCB from the TE "S".

    At the moment, from me directly is the only way. I don't want to have them up at LizardLick until all of the documentation to go with them is ready.
    Either version is $50 and priority mail shipping is $6 in the US.

    VLX Install document posted up. Feedback and criticism very welcome.
    I mean, seriously, stupid simple install. Wish I could write faster.

    Installation guide looks fine.

    Noticed a couple of typos in the firmware readme.txt - 'thsi' at the beginning, and 'inticator' about a third of the way through.

    Hot damn, if or when these are released for the Fighting Stick VX (same PCB as the HRAP VX-SA?), I'm snatching it up with the quickness.

    Subbed.

    e Fighting Stick VX (same PCB as the HRAP VX-SA?)
    Damn near identical pcb's, but they are wired very differently, so each one will have to have different Kitties for each. But, please understand, it's gonna be a bit. Even once I get a layout and installation I like, which can be difficult, then comes the fun of setting things up to properly recognize and use the turbo sliders.

    Assuming the MK9 stick will be common ground (which I know is a huge assumption at this point), will there be any chance of an MK Kitty in the forseeable future?

    I wonder if anyone know about which PCB is in the X360 Asian TE (the all white one with no game branding).
    I really want to get a TEKitty but it has the same color and button layout as the BlazBlue TE so I'm wondering it has the currently incompatible updated PCB too?
